Cancer is one of the scariest words in medicine. Everyone knows the usual treatment options are surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. These treatments can be effective in certain cases. However, some treatments can be difficult to tolerate and can leave patients with long-lasting side effects.
IV high-dose vitamin C therapy can have many benefits to patients with any type of cancer with no side effects. Intravenous or IV Vitamin C can also help patients that decide not to use traditional therapies. More importantly, IV vitamin C can enhance traditional treatments and decrease the side effects of traditional cancer therapy.

  Why Does High Dose IV Vitamin C Therapy Work?

  1. Vitamin C increases the health of the tissue surrounding cancer. This makes it difficult for cancer to grow and penetrate healthy tissue.
  2. Vitamin C increases collagen production. Collagen can encapsulate the tumor. When the tumor is encapsulated it cannot invade surrounding tissue. The collagen capsule also prevents nutrition from reaching the tumor. This leads to the destruction of tumor cells.
  3. The tumor produces chemicals that weaken the surrounding tissue allowing the tumor to invade. Vitamin C blocks the production of these chemicals.
  4. Cancer cells actively deplete vitamin C reserves leaving cancer patients with diminished vitamin C levels and weakened immune systems. Increasing vitamin C levels increases the function of the immune system to fight off diseases.
  5. Some cancers may be caused by cancer-causing viruses like hepatitis. Vitamin C has been shown to kill viruses. This may help prevent cancers originating from viral infections.

 Vitamin C and Glutathione can prevent “Chemo-Brain”

Many patients during and after chemotherapy report they have trouble concentrating, focusing, and remembering. This is believed to be caused by inflammation of brain cells. Chemotherapy is toxic and can affect both healthy cells and cancer cells. Vitamin C is an excellent anti-inflammatory.
The liver is responsible for getting rid of toxins and can be overwhelmed with repeated chemotherapy treatments. Glutathione, which our bodies naturally make,  is needed by the liver to detoxify toxins. Glutathione IV therapy can help remove chemotherapy drugs which often destroy healthy tissues from the body.
We suggest  IV vitamin C and glutathione two to three days after chemotherapy. This seems to prevent chemo-brain and helps to minimize damage to healthy cells  Learn more about our IV therapy services.
